Normally I’d use nail polish remover (have even done it on a suede couch before) but since it’s polyester DON’T do that…

In this case, I’d say good ol’ hairspray. Spray the spot with aerosol hairspray and let it soak for a few minutes. Then use a damp/warm washcloth and rub the spot back and forth to get up both the ink and the hairpray. Use a towel to dry the spot, and feel the spot you cleaned to make sure you got up all the hairspray.

My mom used to do this on my laundry all the time. 😉

I see no mark. But there’s a product called Stain Devils. I’ve gotten all sorts of stains out with those badboys:


Also, if it came from DB like that, shouldn’t it be on DB to get the stain out? Just sayin’.

I would contact the store before you do anything. They might be able to get you a replacement dress. If not, you could negotiate a rebate for the ink stain.

I have used hairspray to take out an ink stain, but to be honest, in this case I would take it to a drycleaner.

Definitely contact the store. If thats how it arrived out of the box, then it is their obligation to provide your maid with a new dress.
